on the nomination to the supreme court of robert bourque. >> in robert bourque's america there is no room at the inn for blacks and no place in the constitution for women and in our america there should be no seat on the supreme court for robert bourque. >> joe klein, in a floor speech, kennedy said in robert bourque's america, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, how do we square that kind of partisanship with the bipartisan dealmaking for what he was justifiably famous for? >> i think that, you know, until recently, those two were not mutely exclusive. you could do both. could i make a point on his tongue-tiedness? >> it seemed to me he became a lot more at ease with himself and at east with answering questions almost immediately after he was eliminated from the presidential competition. i was with him the day that he lost new hampshire, the first kennedy losing in new england. he lost the new hampshire primary to jimmy carter. that night he gave a rip-roaring ad hoc speech. after that i think he seemed to loosen up because the pressure was no longer on him. yes, at times he could be wil

violent disruptions. there needs to be a debate in america on whether we should have universal health care. there needs to ab debate on the president's ideas. if these protesters have ideas, great. let's hear them. if they are just stunts to cause disruption, again, i think it's bad for the country. whether you want the president's plan or not. >> just stunts? we love stunts in the media. >> i love stunts. i don't agree with what -- the kind of things the protesters are saying, but i'm appalled that mark is calling it something other than what it s which is a raw democracy i think that give us time, we will start ignoring these people. much as we ignore code pink now. this is really interesting n one way, which being in the minority, having an unpopular stance forced the republican party into saul-insky tactics. >> you have protesters, and then you have to decide do you give them a paragraph or do they hijack the story? let me show you footage of a town hall meeting in tampa, this was on thursday night where employees showed up, a lot of people couldn't get in. it was a big shouting match.
